Course title

Chemistry 1



Course description

In this course; students will study of the foundations of chemistry; building on the concepts and scientific thinking developed in middle school science. Students use scientific inquiry and higher-order problem solving as they explore the composition; properties; and changes of matter and their applications through interactive simulations; engineering solutions; and virtual and hands-on experiences. The scientific process is fully used and documented in lab investigations; giving students the skills they need to analyze data and make inferences about natural phenomena. In addition; technology; engineering; and mathematics (STEM) concepts are integrated throughout the course. Through phenomenon-based learning; students will be able to demonstrate a vast understanding of the importance of chemistry in the world; enabling them to apply these principles to their everyday lives and our global society.
